The State Secrets Privilege: Relying on Reynolds
Louis Fisher analyzes the state secrets privilege, which permits the executive branch to withhold certain documents requested in litigation. In examining United States v. Reynolds (1953), the first Supreme Court case to recognize and uphold the privilege, he concludes that the decision presented an incoherent policy leading to judicial abdication and that the executive branch misled the Court on the content of key documents.
